This short story follows two ex-employees of an online gaming company as they struggle to find their way in a dystopian future that has no mercy for the weak.
They have each other's backs as they go on a snack run.
Heather and Emma have the munchies. Things just got real.

I dove into this short story having not looked at anything but the name of the author (really, that's all it takes to sell me on anything Erik Schubach... but I digress..). So colour me wonderfully surprised when I realized that it wasn't quite what I had expected!
I won't give any spoilers in the hopes that someone else might have the same experience :)
I listened to this story three times in a row and I'll probably toss it on for a fourth a little bit later just to enjoy the cute and quirky interactions between Heather and Emma. These two have great chemistry and I really hope the story can be fleshed out into a full novel or series. There's a lot of potential for world-building here and I'd love to see what kind of take ES might have it!
Highly recommended for anyone looking for a quick, fun, well-performed audio experience with all of the sweetness, quirkiness and badass female amazingness that is Erik Schubach (and the Queen of All Things Audio, Hollie Jackson)!
I have a soft spot for print since i have started reading since i was young, but i cannot deny that the audio makes the characters more alive to me and it feels like I am immersed into the story.
the fact that it's another take on a zombie apocalypse rather than being man made it's alien and that there are actual characters that are immune and can survive
making the characters more alive. I already have a wide imagination but she makes them more human when i hear it
it made me laugh yes but not that extreme of a laughter i CAN control myself you know but overall it was a very nice audiobook, a quick listen for a short ride on the bus or cab.
Keep up the good work I love hearing more!!!
I'm not usually a fan of short audio books, but I legit enjoyed this one. The story gives you a glimpse into a future of zombies and possibly other creep tastic creatures. Hopefully, there are more books in this series. As always, the narrator is excellent. Definitely worth the listen.
Defibately a book worth listening too. Short but interseting. Erik Schubach is a very talented writer. I have read all of his books and always look forward to a new one coming out.
